BUFFALO, N.Y. - The plan to construct a new Women and Childrens Hospital of Buffalo on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus is under way to replace the current one on Bryant Street.
A spokesperson for the hospital said Friday they have chosen an architect out of Boston to create the new plan.
The firm is Shepley Bulfinch Richardson and Abbott. They are one of the nations top pediatric healthcare architects.
Below is an excerpt from the press release sent out by WCHOB earlier today:
"After considering several of the most respected and experienced architect firms in the U.S., Shepley Bulfinch was selected for their expertise in designing clinically complex facilities that emphasize patient and family-centered care with operational efficiency as well as distinctive architectural forms for many other children's and women's hospitals," said Teresa Quattrin, M.D., Pediatrician-in-Chief, Women & Children's Hospital of Buffalo, and Professor of Pediatrics, Chair, Department of Pediatrics, University of New York at Buffalo.
